According to the National Football Post, Jeremy Bates is headed to USC as an assistant coach - I would assume as offensive coordinator. While I wish him luck, I would be curious as what you folks think regarding what this means for Cutler's development, and who we might tap as our OC. At least he's not going to another NFL franchise . . . yet. It would also seem to potentially be the end of the zone blocking scheme unless Turner has more influence than I'm currently assigning him.
